“The pandemic is video’s evolutionary moment, and as a result, video is now at the forefront of how we communicate with others, how we conduct business, and is enabling us to stay connected even when physically apart”
The adoption of video communications in enterprise organizations is growing at a rapid pace. According to the recent Brightcove Global Video Index, in the first quarter of 2020, video views among enterprise companies increased by 91% year over year, with preliminary year-over-year data from April and May showing viewing increases of nearly 80% and 54%, respectively. Along with this adoption, many in-person events and meetings are moving to online video. With no timetable for the return of large-scale, in-person conferences and events, marketing and event professionals are looking for an in-person alternative, and they are turning to Brightcove for guidance.
